Publisher's Summary

Recently Christopher Scott Downing documented his failed attempt to overcome depression without doctors, therapists, or medication. The result is a Mr. Fix-it caper gone absurdly wrong. It's hilarious at times, deeply personal, and ultimately eye-opening. Finally, it's a wake-up call to men -and their loved ones- who misunderstand depression or are commonly resistant to talking about it.

"The book is exceptionally well-crafted and compelling." (onlinebookclub.com)

Written in a strong, concise style directed toward other men, this memoir is beginning new discussions about major depressive disorder by exploring these questions:

  • What do men experience under depression?
  • How does depression manifest in men uniquely?
  • Why do many men refuse help with this treatable disease?

Veteran psychologist Steven J. Hanley, PhD, provides the wonderful, thought-provoking foreword.

Part of the proceeds go to The Second Wind Fund, a charity dedicated to decreasing the incidence of suicide in youth by removing the financial and social barriers to treatment (thesecondwindfund.org).
